While I agree with your point, I think that comparing her to other dark-skinned women automatically erases the complexion, LS/DS bias. Afro's preference of Danai being the easiest one, being that he shows that he appreciates dark-skinned, bald women, but prefers Danai overall look. If someone were to compare her to Amber Rose and overall people prefer Amber then the easiest conclusion to draw is that people prefer Amber because she is--well--whatever she is that is not dark.
 
It might be more politically correct than anything else but I may be wrong.
 
ETA: But I think that overall the comparisons need to end altogether. I know I sound very "We Are the World" but that's just the space I am in. Black women, Black people, have such diverse beauty and it's rather tragic to see us so underrepresented, marginalized and unappreciated within media, even within our own media. Ultimately she's not a model, she's an actress, and I hope that she continues onto great success and continues to show another facet of black beauty.

And I LIVE for Lupita's look. I met her in France a few years ago and she is even more stunning in person.
 
I always appreciate a woman who doesn't need a whole bunch of extras to slay.

LOLLOL I was thinking that she looks like a good looking black man...
I was thinking she looks like Omar Epps with swollen fish lips. But Femme was feeling herself so I wasn't going to say it. But my 2 +Naomi Campbell easily slays this boyish chick. I'm done. This is some Alek Wek sh*t all over again

LOL omar epps though.. you trying too hard..

Celebrity Style, Hot or Hmm
Hot! or Hmm… Lupita Nyong’o's 2014 Film Independent Filmmaker Grant And Spirit Awards Nominees Brunch Peter Pilotto Resort 2014 Printed Top, Shorts, Anya Hindmarch Clutch, and Sophia Webster Coco Pumps
By Faith

It was all about prints for Lupita Nyong’o at the 2014 Film Independent Filmmaker Grant And Spirit Awards Nominees Brunch in a Peter Pilotto Resort 2014 Printed Top, Shorts, Anya Hindmarch Clutch, and $484 Sophia Webster Coco Pumps:

Lupita opted for the exact styling from the Resort 2014 collection.

We’ve seen Ms. Nyong’o in these pumps already. They’re a fave of hers and I can see why! I love that she’s bringing the pointed-toe white pump trend into 2014.

Lupita is on a roll! I cannot wait to see what she wears to tomorrow’s Golden Globe Awards.

What do you think? Hot! or Hmm…?

*Queen Angela Bassett was also in attendance, along with Melonie Diaz. Thoughts on their Byron Lars and Halston Heritage frocks?
